Up on the High Road to Taos

There are two routes to take to Taos..one meanders along the Rio Grande from Española up to Taos, and is generally called the low road to Taos.

The other, winds up and over the mountains between Chimayó and Taos, and is popularly referred to as the High Road. It is the way I prefer to go, especially with visitors, because the scenic vistas and the quaint little northern New Mexico Spanish villages are breath-taking.

Here are a couple pictures I took at one of the highest points along the High Road:

I love eating at Chimayo and driving the High Road. When I think of this route, I think of "Red Sky at Morning."

I wish I had taken more pictures that day that we took the High Road, but sometimes I just get so involved looking at all the scenery, that I forget to get out the camera. I love that route, and all those tiny northern NM towns.

I've never eat at the restaurant in Chimayo .. seems like we were just always passing through there on the way to someplace else. Maybe someday.
